After you meet the Part B deductible , you pay 20% of the Medicare-Approved Amount for your doctor's or other health care provider's services, and you usually pay nothing additional for the supplies. You also pay a separate

copayment

 for these services when you get them in a

hospital outpatient setting

.

Note:

To find out how much your test, item, or service will cost, talk to your doctor or health care provider. The specific amount you’ll owe may depend on several things, like:

  • Other insurance you may have
  • How much your doctor charges
  • If your doctor accepts assignment
  • The type of facility
  • Where you get your test, item, or service
